Georgina's newborn daughter is stolen at a fake health clinic. Her desperate search for the child leads her to the headquarters of a major newspaper, where she meets a lonely journalist who takes on the investigation.
With her abusive husband in jail and a coveted divorce pending, hardworking Noura can almost grasp a happy, new life with lover Lassaad - but when the best-laid plans are upended, Noura must tap her unshakable will to fulfill her dream.
"Litigante" is sort of like a reworking of "Terms of Endearment". However, instead of a fake happy Hollywood ending (which never felt true to me when I saw it), the film goes for realism. The story is about a dying mother in Columbia and her daughter who constantly argues with her about just about everything. By the end of the story, the mother dies and the daughter seems to have learned nothing about her mother or herself. Realistic? Yes....but not especially enjoyable to watch...especially since I had a hard time connecting with the characters or caring about them. I think, in the end, I wanted realism BUT something more.
